    Marty Turco has accepted that he’s going to be playing for someone else next year and he’s coming to terms with what that means. Stars’ beat writer Mike Heika caught up with Turco and offers an outstanding perspective on the soon-to-be former Stars goaltender. Turco saw his share of ups and downs in his career…

  2. End of 2: Pens-Sens still tied 1-1

    Apr 16, 2010, 8:47 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    A second period set to be filled with hot play and hotter tempers seemed to even out pretty well although the Penguins are generating better chances offensively than the Senators.  No goals came through in the second period but it wasn’t without it’s pieces of drama, including a bad penalty taken by Matt Cooke.  The…

  3. End of 1: Flyers lead Devils 2-1

    Apr 16, 2010, 8:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    After seeing very little in the way of fun or action in Game 1 between Philly and New Jersey, the teams decided to pick things up a bit in Game 2 that’s been ripe with penalties. Zach Parise got the Devils on the board first with a shorthanded tally which saw him take advantage of…

  4. End of 1: Pens-Sens tied at 1

    Comments Off

    After one period in Pittsburgh the Penguins are, perhaps, finding that they’re going to be mixed up in a tough series. 18 seconds into the game, Senators forward Peter Regin scored on a laser shot past Pens goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, something that’s sure to keep Penguins fans on edge the rest of the way if/when…

  5. The playoff beard phenomenon

    Apr 16, 2010, 6:35 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    “So how’s your playoff beard doing?” You can file that one away under “questions a hockey fan asks” and not get a funny look for doing so. Every April it’s the playoffs rite of passage and it’s something that’s solely unique to hockey. Seeing the beards grow in as the playoffs wear on is always…

  6. Dirty hit or not? Tyler Myers

    Apr 16, 2010, 5:02 PM EDT

    We sort of covered this earlier, but now thanks to some quotes coming out of Boston, it’s starting to get a little bit more run around the Internet. So now, we’ll pose the question to you: Was Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers’ hit on Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk a dirty hit? In case you missed it,…

  7. Coyotes prepared for more physical Wings

    Apr 16, 2010, 4:21 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    If there’s one thing that really stood out about how the Phoenix Coyotes ultimately handled the Red Wings, it was their physical play. While some may question a number of the hits laid out by Shane Doan in the contest — and there were a number of borderline hits — there’s no doubting that after…

  8. More harping on fan atmosphere at Prudential

    Apr 16, 2010, 3:32 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    It seems that perhaps claims of empty seats and quiet Devils fans weren’t exactly unfounded. While having blogger Travis Hughes claim so is one thing (although I must note that Travis has as much integrity as any print journalist working), when it’s harped upon by a ‘legitimate’ hockey columnist it carries a bit more weight.…

  9. Ovechkin: "I don't feel that power…"

    Apr 16, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    Following up on our story this morning on Alex Ovechkin’s struggles last night against Montreal, there was no question his ‘off game’ would be brought up today by the media in Washington. And you have to hand it to him, he’s owned up to exactly what everyone noticed, saying today to what was likely a…

  10. Detroit fans react to Holmstrom "rumor"

    Apr 16, 2010, 2:06 PM EDT

    Ah yes, those pesky sports rumors and the trouble they cause. Today, ESPN Insider posted an update to their NHL Rumor Central, with this headline:“Tomas Holmstrom might be changing teams. Gasp!” If that’s not headline baiting, then I don’t know what is. Unless you subscribe to their Insider access, you’d never know exactly where they…

  11. Crosby not surprised by Capitals loss to Habs

    Apr 16, 2010, 1:59 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    I’m sure this will get some attention, although it really isn’t that big a deal in the big scheme of things. Talking to Craig Custance of Sporting News, Sidney Crosby says he’s not surprised that the Capitals lost to the Montreal Canadiens. After all, the Penguins didn’t look too sharp themselves, and lost to the…

  12. Flyers vs. Devils: The fans are getting into it

    Apr 16, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    With the New Jersey Devils surprised — and honestly outplayed — by the Philadelphia Flyers in game one on Thursday night, there’s a bit of a rift forming between the two opposing fan bases. Not that that’s much of a surprise when it comes to the NHL playoffs (San Jose Sharks fans absolutely loathe the…

  13. Predators sign Blake Geoffrion to entry level contract

    Great news today for the Nashville Predators and Blake Geoffrion, as the team as has the Hobey Baker award winner to an entry level contract. Geoffrion will immediately join the Predators’ AHL team, the Milwaukee Admirals, as they take on the Chicago Wolves. As Preds on the Glass notes, Geoffrion is a local prospect and…

  14. Flyers leaning heavy on Chris Pronger

    Apr 16, 2010, 11:57 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    With the playoffs upon us, the Philadelphia Flyers in the playoffs and after a game one upset of the Devils the spotlight is shining bright on Chris Pronger once more. And with Pronger playing the resident territorial bad guy in front of the Flyers net as he bats away those pesky Devils forwards, obviously the…

  15. Willis Tower to glow red for Blackhawks

    Apr 16, 2010, 11:20 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Per, Willis Tower (formerly known as Sears Tower) will be illuminated red each night the Blackhawks have a game in the playoffs. My first thought, was how were they going to light up the entire tower red? Put red lights in every 1,527,891,498 window? Turns out, that starting tonight, it’s the two antennas on…

  16. Zdeno Chara impressed with fellow giant Tyler Myers

    Apr 16, 2010, 11:05 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    If there’s one defenseman in the NHL who can identify with literally towering over the competition, it’s the 6-foot-9 Zdeno Chara. So of course he’s going to be asked about the large defenseman on the other side of the ice from him in the first round series against the Sabres. And of course Chara, who…

  17. 2010 NHL playoffs: Capitals, Canucks highlights

    Apr 16, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    Here are the highlights from last night’s great games. Eventually someone will win by more than a goal, but for now I’m just going to enjoy these one-goal games.  

  18. Is the pressure getting to Alex Ovechkin?

    Apr 16, 2010, 9:55 AM EDT

    Aside from the story of how Tomas Plekanec actually backed up his big words — something you don’t see everyday in professional sports — the story this morning is surrounding Alex Ovechkin and his zero shots on goal. The Capitals were foiled by much more than just Ovechkin being a non-factor for much of the…

  19. Roberto Luongo's confidence returning?

    Apr 16, 2010, 9:20 AM EDT

    If the Vancouver Canucks have aspirations of going any deeper in the playoffs than the second round, they’ll need Roberto Luongo to be just a bit more consistent. He has the ability to be an elite goaltender, and is routinely considered one of the top netminders in the NHL. Yet there are times when he…

  20. 2010 NHL playoffs: Goal of the Night

    Apr 16, 2010, 8:45 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Tomas Plekanec backed up his big words with a big goal last night, but I want to point something else in this video out. Look at what led directly to the goal: the Capitals had trouble all night long in their transition game, making one lackadaisical pass after another. Here it was the same, which…
